YouTube has introduced a new version of its video player with storyboard feature, which will enable users to easily navigate videos. With this new feature you will be able to see video thumbnail of any point just by hovering the video’s timeline and all this without actually moving the video ahead.
The feature which was first spotted by Amit Agarwal from the Digital Inspiration blog is currently being rolled out but it’s unclear when it will be standard for every video.
At present, YouTube generates three thumbnail images to represent a video but this update will allow up to 100 thumbnails per video arranged in a 10×10 storyboard grid.
The storyboard feature could be helpful to quickly skip to the most interesting part of the video based on the video thumbnails just like Dailymotion.
